AO - the return of the five deadly venoms

Old guard:

Davydenko - can beat anybody on his day , not the best year behind him, should be hungry to prove he belongs at the top, and quarterfinal to defend.

Nalbandian - same as Davy, can beat anybody, fitness not the best, very dangerous, not the best ending this year, should be motivated defends zero.

New guard:

Del Potro - easily most dangerous floater in the draw, great mental strength, won a major , should be eager to play, defends round of 16.

Cilic - similar to Del Potro in playing style, maybe less fire power, but better a the net, better mover, defends semi-final, in a slump most of 2010.

Gulbis - an enigma, very talented, so far has done poorly in slams, but on his day very dangerous opponent for anybody, defends 10 pts.

Your opinion on these players at upcoming AO. Surely, nobody would like to see them in their section of the draw.

I hope Del Potro can return to his best form. 2010 was incredibly boring without him.

None of those guys are a big threat in AO.

If David is fit he could beat Roger or Rafa.
That backhand is precious.

The only thing Nalbandian is beating is his own donut eating record.

Re: AO - the return of the five deadly venoms

Where is Roddick?

For me, Nalbandian and Kolya are done. Mugrin is also not a threat anymore due to his slump and will lose many points here next year. Delpo is a big question mark atm. I would rather consider people such as Troicki who is riding confidence from his davis cup wins as a deadly venom. He took Djokovic to 5 at the USO this year and when playing well can certainly be a huge threat.

Andy Roddick

Re: AO - the return of the five deadly venoms

Del Potro can volley well, anyone remember against Nadal in Miami last year? He was sensational at the net.
